Founded in Kona, Hawaii, the home of the Ironman Triathlon World Championships, Zoot Sports began making performance apparel that catered to elite athletes competing in the emerging sport of Triathlon. A woman by the name of Christal Nylin, who lived in Kona, noticed that the athletes competing in Ironman needed something more functional to race in. In other words, a solution to avoid having to use transition as "changing areas," and to no surprise, the same principle we strive by today: to find product solutions for multisport athletes.
Zoot has grown to be a global premier endurance sports brand, distributed worldwide and is the creator of the first triathlon-specific footwear line. Zoot continues to draw on its history in the sport and its athletes to deliver the most comprehensive, technologically-advanced, and complete multisport product line in the world.
